Dell XPS M1530

 

Dell takes the superb M1330 chassis and expands it to a 15.4in frame. Is this a stroke of genius or has it missed the mark?

As 15.4 notebooks go the XPS M1530 is exceedingly slim and good looking, making it great option for those who want a desktop replacement but don't want to sacrifice on styling or features.

Dell XPS M1530 review

 

Attractive, powerful and not too expensive, the M1530 sounds like the perfect laptop. Well, almost...

Great looking, built like a tank and very well specced for the price. The only possible turn off is the rubber finish

Dell XPS M1530 laptop

 

When Dell announced it would be overhauling its premium notebook brand, the XPS line, with an ultraportable in the form of the XPS M1330, the company was clearly on to a winning formula. So, it comes as no surprise this latest model is exactly the same...

Great design, powerful

Not as cool as the lighter M1330

If you liked the styling of the XPS M1330 but felt it a little too small for everyday use, the XPS M1530 is the machine for you. It has the same great build quality and a specification that puts other machines of this price to shame. However, what...

A stylish and powerful follow-up to the M1330

Comfortable to use ; Looks great ; Good screen

Not compatible with DirectX 10 ; Short battery life

Looking like a larger version of the M1330, this is a powerhouse portable

Dell XPS M1530 review

 

Dell's XPS brand is associated with gaming laptops, but the M1530 excels in a wide variety of tasks. This model has been generously upgraded over the M1530 we reviewed in Shopper 243 but costs just £20 more.

Dell XPS 1530 – Media Center and Design

 

I have had the opportunity of testing the Dell XPS 1530 that, among other things, offers a 2, 00 GHz T7250 processor, 256 Mb Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, 2048 MB DDR2 RAM as well as a 15.4” screen size. The laptop mainly speaks to the light multimedia...

Best in class Laptop for $1000

Finger Print reader software from UPEK is quite slow at detection and it's not practical ; Finish could have been a little teeny better - especially the way the battery area attaches to the keyboard area

Great feature set, fast, GFX card, HDMI out

keyboard/touchpad could be better

The Dell XPS 1530 series can be had from around £499+VAT upwards depending on options. For this you get a great chassis packed with features that really set it apart from the budget offerings that litter the supermarket shelves at £300 or so. Yes it...
